In just six years of existence, College Hockey Inc. has helped impact NCAA Division I men’s college hockey through extensive marketing and informational efforts designed to raise the sport’s profile and to encourage elite young players to pursue a college hockey career.

The entity is operated under the auspices of a 12-member Board of Directors. It works closely with the commissioners of the six Division I men’s hockey conferences and the coaching staffs and administrations of the 60 Division I programs. The organization was made possible by resources provided by USA Hockey, through a grant from the National Hockey League.

College Hockey Inc. has reached thousands of young players and their families to promote the college hockey experience through grassroots and mass communications initiatives. Foremost among these efforts are our College Hockey Summits, gatherings of up to 75 top players in cities across North America that inform the players and their parents about college hockey and introduce them to some of the sport’s coaches.

Feedback from those sessions has been overwhelmingly positive. Former college players currently in the NHL often participate to talk about their undergraduate experiences.

“We can definitely attest that CHI is instrumental in moving players towards their goals.” – Parent in California

Whether addressing individual teams or large groups, the message is the same: the college hockey experience is the best in the world, thanks to an elite on-ice product, outstanding educational opportunities and the unique campus environment.

In the 2013-14 season a record 305 NHL players came from college hockey backgrounds, making college hockey the fastest growing development path to the NHL and a bigger source of talent than all of Europe. College Hockey Inc.’s message highlights the success of those players to illustrate that college hockey is a proven path to the NHL.

Also noted is the fact that the average NHL career lasts less than five years, and regardless of how good a player is, he should anticipate retirement at some point. A college education gives players a leg up when it comes to the next step in life.

Finally, the college experience – from the student sections at games to student-athletes’ experience of living on their own – helps prepare players for their next steps in hockey and in life.

“Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours,
weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance
itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.”
-T Alan Armstrong.

Thrive was founded in March 2007 with the vision to make available to all skating athletes within Central Alberta the opportunity to become better players, reaching their full potential in sport and citizenship.

Thrive instructors have the technical knowledge, education and practical playing and coaching experiences that guarantee players individual development.

We believe in individuality. Everyone is unique and therefore requires a program that works for them. Our small group & individual training guarantees special individual attention to each player’s needs. Thereby maximizing the development potential of each Thrive athlete.

We are committed to helping thrive athletes achieve success as they gain skills on their climb up the performance ladder. We know the skills they learn on the ice will be translated into their lives outside of the rink. It is our goal to help them become victors in life by building their championship character.
